Hey Gleeks! Let’s all take a moment to congratulate ourselves, we survived the hiatus! Those weeks were brutal, but I think it was all worth it with last nights episode.
We finally figure out the fate of our poor Quinn, she’s okay! She comes back wheelchair bound, but with the same fantastic singing voice that we’ve always associated with her; as she proved when Artie while singing Still Standing. The whole performance included a bunch of cute moves on the wheelchairs, as well as a very strong friendship between Quinn and Artie, Quartie anyone?
Quinn’s physical condition is that the accident caused her spine to compress, putting her in the wheelchair. She is fully convinced she will be out of that chair with a full recovery by Nationals. Let’s hope!
Next we see Sue in principal Figgins office. She is being pressured to get funds for the school and to accomplish that the principal has assigned Roz Washington (bronze medallist swim team coach) to help her coach the Cheerios. Sue is not having that, so instead of working with Roz, she decided to try to get the extra money by helping the Glee Club! Being her usual self, she puts them through a brutal Booty Camp session.
Then comes what we’ve all been waiting for, the arrival of Cooper Anderson! He’s as charming and as handsome as we all had imagined. He comes strutting down the halls of McKinley, making even Kurt completely infatuated with him. Blaine does not seem too impressed. Cooper is instantly recognizable by the kids of Lima, He’s the Guy From the Free Credit Rating commercial! He even sweeps Sue off her feet and signs her boob, “Keep on Dreaming. Yours, Cooper Anderson”
Then we get a super cute Faberry moment Rachel stands up for Quinn while they are planning their senior skip day, and Quinn reassures her all will be well.
The seniors, with the exception of Quinn and Artie, all enjoy their skip day at Six Flags! Quinn and Artie go to a skate park with all handicapped people, and both groups have a great time. We get another Quartie duet, Up Up Up.
The New Directions get the pleasure of getting a “master class” in acting from Cooper Anderson, who loves to point, turn to pose, and thinks that Broadway is dead. Everyone but Blaine seems to think he’s right. To show the glee club what Blaine and him used to do when they were younger, Cooper starts the Duran Duran mashup of Hungry Like the Wolf/Rio, one of my favourites.
SO. MUCH. BLANGST. Turns out all that Blaine wants is some support from his big brother! As we’ve seen, Cooper doesn’t come off as the supportive type, which leads us to our next emotional song number, Fighter. We get to see some shirtless Blaine, what’s not to love?!
Other important news, Sue and Wemma take a trip to the doctors to find out that Sue’s having a baby girl! There’s one little problem, the baby has an irregularity, which will give the possibility of the baby being born autistic. If anyone on the show can handle it, Sue can. She’s going to be a great mom.
Cooper and Blaine sing out their feelings in Somebody That I Used to Know, where Cooper even starts crying a little bit. The two finally come to a happy ending, and are on their way to becoming the loving Anderbros we always wanted We also got a very cute Klaine moment, where Kurt gives Blaine a puppy he took from Finn and Rachel at Six Flags.
More expected Finchel drama! Finn is starting to realise that he needs to start thinking about his own future, and Puck gave him a nice option; work with him in his pool cleaning buisness, where he plans on extending to L.A! Rachel is dead set on New York, so we’ll have to wait ’till next episode to see what she does!
SO EVERYONE, what did you think of our returning episode? I thought it was a great start to the final stretch toward the end of the season. Who here wants Quartie to happen, or does anyone like Quinn and Jo? Thoughts on Sue and her baby?
